We celebrated the “Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav” with green and swachh-themed activities to mark 75 years of our Independence.
We partnered with the Government of India’s Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav to commemorate 75 years of India’s independence. The initiative was organized with the aim to encourage community participation at the local level that can add up to bring about a change at the national level. In this spirit, on September 23, we carried out tree plantation drives across our SEZ assets, under the Department of Commerce-assigned ‘Green and Swachh SEZs’ theme and the Swachhata Campaign.
Along with the plantation drive, we also organized a string of activities, like Nukkad Nataks and quiz competitions, at our campuses across India. To focus on the initiative’s citizen participation aspect and to uphold our commitment toward sustainability, we involved occupiers across our Candor TechSpace campuses in Sector 135, Noida; in Sectors 21 and 48, Gurugram; and our campuses in Kolkata, Kensington SEZ in Powai, Mumbai, and Ecoworld in Bengaluru to engage in the tree plantation drive. It resulted in 254 plants taking root in the public areas of the SEZs and sowing the seeds of sustainability in the hearts and minds of the public at large.
The campaign played a role in our vision for the outreach program that extends our commitment to a cleaner environment as we believe building a sustainable tomorrow begins with us today. We are constantly implementing initiatives across our campuses to help us lower our environmental impact as when it comes to sustainability, we are all in.
